Hollywood Ink: Welcome to the Slowest News Day of 2010
· Hey, here's a Lost follow-up for you: While traveling back from the Cannes Film Festival, apparently the entire Hollywood news-making establishment disappeared off the radar somewhere over the Atlantic. The only thing that seems to be happening today is that Ray Liotta is going to appear in Things Fall Apart, that movie featuring Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson as a college football player who faces his mortality. Liotta will portray the player's doctor and probably find a hatch buried somewhere near the set in Michigan, where all of the film industry's happenings for the notoriously slow week between Cannes and Memorial Day are buried every year. Maybe there's an Anchorman 2 sequel in there! Developing... [Variety]
I defy you to give a crap about anything that follows as Hollywood Ink stalls out and dies a horrible death after the jump.
· Paula Patton is going to play the leader of a wealthy African-American family in the wedding comedy Jumping the Broom, about that family's clash with a less-privileged clan during a weekend wedding at Martha's Vineyard. It's currently shooting in Nova Scotia, which is just like Martha's Vineyard, but, like, with tundra. [THR]
· Orlando Bloom is joining the cast of Summit's 3-D take on The Three Musketeers, because, well, obviously. [Variety]
· Kevin Zegers has two indies lined up, including A Great Education (a coming-of-age drama at Harvard also starring Sir Ben Kingsley and Emma Roberts) and the college-heist flick Entitled, featuring... Ray Liotta. But what about the 50 Cent college movie above? Are there... two of Liotta? Flash-sideways, right? Ugh. [Variety]
· The 3-D reality-show-gone-awry thriller No Man's Land has added a cast including Michael Clarke Duncan, Sharni Vinson, Samm Levine, Christopher McDonald and -- from Lost, natch -- Zuleikha Robinson. [Variety]
